Massachusetts and Virginia own Colonial U.S. history. Most of the settlements and events happened in those two states and they've done a fine job of preserving everything. Visiting Massachusetts is a better way to study Colonial America than taking a course in high school or college. Above is the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor. At right are Minutemen at the Old North Bridge. You can immerse yourself in villages at Mystic, Plimoth Plantation and Old Salem. You can board historic ships : The Mayflower, Essex, Old Ironsides and Friendship. You can tour homes of Paul Revere, Nathaniel Hawthorne and other leaders. Half of America's top museums are in Massachusetts. If you have any interest at all in history, you must come to Massachusetts and you really need to come several times. If you have children they deserve several visits to Massachusetts where they can learn the history their schools no longer teach them. Militia firing
Cape Cod beach And it's not like a week or two of studying history in Masachusetts is boring. You can mix in plenty of other activities. Many of the finest beaches in North America are along this coast, like the Cape Cod beach shown here. Fishing, Whale Watching, Restaurants, Hiking, Bicycling, Sailing, Painting, Photography and other pursuits can be mixed in each day. You could even attend a major sporting event : the Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins have long histories of championships and legendary coaches and players. The only limiting factor is the calendar. Winters here are ferocious. Almost everything you want to see closes. Even the great saiing ships have their masts lowered and are towed into covered drydocks similar to airplane hangers. Massachusetts trips need to be scheduled between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
